    Pinocchio-related Bill Titlon Archive Group of 6 (Walt Disney, c. 1940). Here's a lot for Disney historians. Bill Titlon was an artist who worked on both Pinocchio and Bambi, including a great deal of work on Thumper. He joined the Army during World War II and served in the Korean War. He was the creator and author of the "Drawing Board" column in Artist Magazine. From his personal archives comes this collection. It includes a "Good Cheer Bartender" drawing done on Disney 12 field 5-peghole paper (signed); a photo of Monstro that was pinned on his animation board as well as a Monstro model sheet print; an article on the making of Pinocchio that was in Popular Mechanics, January 1940; a highly stylized Pirate painting on board (signed); and a series of facial expressions on a revolutionary war character, in six panels taped to board. An article on Mr. Titlon's career is also in this lot. Minor handling and edge wear on all. Good condition.
